Jake’s Broccoli Stir Fry with Ginger and Sesame

This is a dish my mother in law made this summer for my son who was visiting their house on the coast of Maine.  She said he “wolfed it down” and that my father in law asks for it.

Mediterranean Gourmet Power Bowl Recipe

Mediterranean cuisine is one of my favorites.  It feels so fresh and clean and tastes like spring.  I created this after spotting a great advertisement by Udi’s for their sundried tomato artichoke pizza. If you’re looking to increase the vegetables in way that tastes great, reduce the wheat, have a “perfect protein”, and leave feeling clean and full of energy, this is for you! One thing we are working hard on doing is identifying foods that can be used in small amounts to deliver a big taste. Goat cheese is one of those foods. It is also a food that is a staple of...
